... then along comes the training materials from Glenn. As a beginner, I started through the manual and it was pretty slow going. Then I discovered the (optional) "streaming videos" that go with it. Holy Crap, Marie! I'm now two hours into the training and the knowledge blanks that have been filled in are amazing.
There is so much stuff in this....If you are serious about WinDev and don't rate yourself at "8" or higher, you will get value returned in both money and time. This is especially true if you are coming from Clarion.
Glenn & I finished up our last session the other day with a short demonstration of "indirection." This is the first time I have understood (even a little) the purpose. I look forward to expanding on it.Dave Schwartz - 04/01/18
"Just spent a wonderful 4 days in West Palm beach with Glenn Rathke learning the in's and out's of WinDev. His knowledge of the product and programming is unsurpassed. Was able to
learn more than the basics in 3 1/2 days, ask questions and explore specific issues. "
"If you or your team is needing a little bit of boost to improve your productivity I highly recommend touching base with Glenn to setup training individually or for your company group. If you get a chance to attend his training, do so, even if you're an experienced programmer, you're bound to pick up a trick or two." Kevin Perryman - 01/11/18
"The WinDev training I received from Glenn was excellent! The IDE for WinDev is very impressive. Being new to WinDev and WLanguage I enjoyed the learning experience as Glenn covered the material on his agenda but welcomed ALL my questions with quick responses and even ventured down fantastic rabbit trails that allowed me to wrap my head around concepts that took time to sink in. The coding examples are great. I look forward to a great future developing with PC Soft tools."
"I have really enjoyed the RAD pattern capabilities. I have added my own windows and functions and then built new apps based off that and it is just fantastic to me how much coding (your own coding) can be done for you at the click of a button."
"Thank you Glenn for your patience with me during training." William Cook - 02/01/17
"I am new at WinDev, and was really having problems getting my program off the ground.
It is extremely difficult to be productive when you are not familiar with Windev navigation, but still need to be productive, especially when you are under the gun for product.
I contacted Glenn Rathke for assistance, and he worked with me to get my project off the ground with advanced methods I would not have known how to implement with my initial knowledge of WinDev.
He started off with not only Windev guidance and training, but also helped to gather the appropriate requirements to get my project going in the right direction. In this initial phase, if not done correctly, everything would have ultimately fallen apart, as this requirements phase set the stage for the core of the project code.
Glenn took the bull by the horns, and worked on the IMPORT phase, which is the core of my project.
The method(s) are both elegant, and easy to update, and he worked tirelessly to make the code future ready so upgrades would be a snap.
Glenn is also incredibly honest, and could easily have gouged me on price, but he makes the best use of his time and efforts to keep the project costs extremely reasonable.
Best of all working with Glenn is an extreme pleasure. I would recommend Glenn for any project you might have in mind. He has a broad knowledge scope that will far offset any costs you might incur engaging his services. He saved me countless hours of research, development and eliminated experimentation.. My highest recommendation!" Rick Williams - 9/15
"Your training has helped me shortcut the learning curve which of course is a giant help to anyone. The coding is the coding, but the real world examples are what is needed and yours are great. The QBE alone is worth it's weight in gold!" Bob Richards - 1/14
Thanks again for 4 great days of WD immersion! It's exactly what I needed
to get me motivated to move forward with WinDev! Your examples were
meaningful, and I especially appreciated your willingness and excitement to
'go off road' and tackle questions that we brought up, and incorporate
those answers directly into our training." Brent Engel - 4/13
"Your videos made all the difference. They are a great resource. I'm a visual creature and combined with your voice.... perfect for this work. I’m working on my 3rd Windev project this month. What an absolute pleasure... My productivity is considerably better and feature rich than I thought possible... I re-watched his (Soft Design Consulting, LLC) videos recently after a 6 month hiatus on Windev, it was just what I needed to wire myself into the WX world. Thanks again Glenn and Arnold for producing those videos." Brian K. Reid
"I especially liked the coverage of the IDE and explanation of the WLanguage. The class was very informative. A must for beginners of WinDev, WebDev, and WinDev Mobile. But would be helpful for experienced developers as well. I would pay for up to date documents and examples if available" Alan Cochran / Water Systems Incorporated
"I liked the examples, training manual, and getting questions answered. This was one giant step forward for me" Bob Roos / QuickBooks 3rd Party Vendor
"The flexibility, thoroughness, real world examples were pertinent to our needs and requirements" Don Schoen / American Litho
"I especially like the practical knowledge of the instructor and informal interchange among the participants, depth of the examples" John Rae
"The real bonus of Glenn's training is the really cool and practical code in his many example apps!" Arnold Young
"Glenn was patient and provided great examples. Glenn laid out a perfect mix of instructional time to hands on time." Scott Cruse / Everett Cash
“Glenn is very knowledgeable and experienced with WebDev, and his training is efficient and effective. He crafted the training to meet our needs, made samples to assist us, and provided clear explanations.” Mark Robbins / University IT Director
“After 30 years of programming changing languages can be tough, in my conversion to using Windev and its products Glenn was invaluable as a resource and training mentor to make the transition possible as well as enjoyable.” Andy Stapleton / Cowboy Computing Solutions
“Our level of understanding has been completely accelerated through Glenn’s natural passion to teach, he possesses the rare combination of skills required for this (great teacher and a skilled programmer). Dave White / DART Australia
“Glenn is the consummate professional with the heart of a teacher. We have recommended him and his services for countless customers and have received nothing but positive feedback.
